Ide say 4ounces, in 1part sections.

Yes, it can dry. Its preferred to use this method, as it decreases warping.

Strips. They don't have to fit flush, either.

Diferent times.

Paint it in sections.

Hope this helps!

:unsure: Hmmmm... If only there were somewhere you could get your questions answered.... Huh?

I dunno, maybe someone here has done fiberglassing before and can post up their technique..
